The last thing you want is for your home in Alabama to catch fire from electrical outlet problems! Does your outlet spark, snap, pop, or scare the heck out of you?
It's trying to tell you that it needs our help here at Advanced Electrical Company!
Outlet problems are a common problem for everyone across the United States. This is simply because there are so many homes in the country and many of our homes have electrical systems that are older. Even with newer homes, if connections weren't made correctly to begin with an outlet can have problems.
Older homes have older wiring that may need to be completely replaced. Other times, your outlet connections could have come loose. Over time, the wiring and parts of your outlet are subjected to vibrations, expansion and contraction from weather conditions, and more which make the connections come loose. This is one common problem homeowners have.
Your outlet may also be of the wrong type necessary. For example, you may need a GFCI type outlet instead of a regular outlet if it's located in an area where water could get on it or on items you plug in. AFCI outlets can automatically shut off the power to the line if it recognizes a potential fire hazard.
Electricity is never something you want to mess around with if you aren't professionally trained and licensed! Yet many homeowners think that if they can turn a screwdriver, they can fix an outlet. And it's true that the concept as well as the task seems simple...but it's not.
For instance, do you know what the conditions are that will cause an electrical arc? You may know what an electric arc is, but what makes them happen?
Or, do you understand how electricity passes between the system of wiring in your home? You may think everything is going to be fine if you just shut off the main breaker entirely, but that isn't the case either because you'll have to turn that breaker back on and if you haven't done things correctly, you could hurt yourself or someone else trying to use the outlet later.
Perhaps you know a little about electricity and how it works, but that doesn't mean you've had the rest of the knowledge and experience given to you that you truly need to work safely on your home's electrical system.
